That quotation mark buttons are perfect. I think you should see if you can turn it into earrings. That way, everything coming out of you is automatically in quotes attributed to you, and we can quote you easily. Gosh, I wished I could draw cartoons/caricatures of that.
:-) Have a good Friday.

How uplifting that you could share your Harvest Moon gifts with us. It's exciting to see what other people give and receive, especially talented and thoughtful people. It's good to hear that you have picked up your own textile/fiber/bead work again, are you also going to share pics of that? The encaustic sounds exciting.
I can empathise with you, i've had my own share of e-haters and destroyers, it comes with the territory of being outspoken. I've learnt that i had to become a dragon or a phoenix tho - fireproof, but it took a while to evolve.
I'm looking forward to your Slow Cloth website, i've quit Facebook, privacy concerns. kaite
